You just can’t make this stuff up.
No matter what side of the aisle you are, you’ve got to appreciate that when political operatives want to dig up dirt on someone, they will find out anything even slightly damning that one’s opponents could use against them.
Then they leave it to the media to spin the ever-loving heck out of it.
Now, when it comes to Trump, it doesn’t seem like his political opponents or the media (but I repeat myself) are in want of material to use against him.
What seems to vex them, however, is that, between the Access Hollywood tapes, Stormy Daniels, collusion with Russia, and his perceived praise of neo-Nazis, they still can’t take him down.
So rather than continue to offer measured criticism of his policies, they’re grasping at straws for something even more damning.
Even if that something doesn’t necessarily exist and no one has ever seen it.
A tape might exist of Trump doing something in an elevator, though exactly where that somewhere is and what that something might be, no one in media can say. That’s because no one in media seems to have seen the tape — or is even confident it exists. https://t.co/yq8cyjfCfm

“A tape might exist of Trump doing something in an elevator, though exactly where that somewhere is and what that something might be, no one in media can say. That’s because no one in media seems to have seen the tape — or is even confident it exists,” they legitimately tweeted out with an accompanying article which had just about as much substance.
This has been a rumor floating around since before the 2016 election and, by HuffPo’s own admission, has never been substantiated.
So why on earth are they talking about it?
No, seriously. Did they honestly run out of things to complain about the very same week Trump is meeting with Putin? Or is their Propagandist-in-Chief out sick this week?
As you can imagine, the responses were pretty brutal:
What is this supposed to mean ????

If someone does or doesn’t do something in an elevator and no one is there to record it, did the tree really fall at all?
